Holiday Shipping 🎁📦

All carriers experience a higher volume of delays this time of year due to the increased demand for shipping during the holiday season. In order to ensure your package arrives prior to December 25th you must submit your order on or prior to December 13th. We highly recommend opting for Route insurance to protect your order against carrier delays. If your order is delayed please email us immediately at orders@wanderlustcreamery.com. Please keep in mind processing and delivery generally takes up to 7 days, however Wanderlust Creamery has no control over carrier delays. 

Why is the online store always "Sold Out"?

The online shop gets restocked weekly in “drops”, where we release a few thousand pints into inventory. To receive a notification for the next online pint drop, be sure to sign up here.

why do you sell out so quickly?

We drop a few thousand pints into inventory at a time, and on average the entire site sells out within 30 minutes. Our highly coveted flavors typically sell out in 3 minutes. While we would like to have enough ice cream in inventory for everyone, please keep in mind that we make many of our products from scratch, and hand-pack our pints in our Los Angeles kitchen. We will continue to try & keep up with the demand as best we can.

is there a minimum to order?

For all orders in California, Arizona, and Nevada, there is a 12 pint maximum per order.

For all orders everywhere else in the United States*, there is a 12 pint maximum per order.

how much is shipping?

For California, Arizona, and Nevada, it’s $20 for up to 12 pints.

**We ship via 1-2 day and our pints are packed in a box with a liner made of thermal panels that comprise of an ultra-insulating polyurethane foam insulator. The packing materials used are 100% recyclable.**

Why is shipping so expensive?

We would absolutely love to offer lower shipping rates to our customers, and we have been continually working on this since we began shipping pints amid the start of the pandemic last year. Just to be clear, we do not profit on shipping; the cost of shipping paid by the customer is equal to the amount we pay to our carrier for shipping services in addition to the cost of dry ice packaging. As the demand for pints by mail continues to grow, we look forward to a continued increase in volume which in turn will lead to lower rates from our carriers. Additionally, we are constantly reviewing our packaging and dry ice suppliers and their various competitors in an effort to bring down the cost of shipping for our customers.

We look forward to announcing lower shipping rates in the future, and we hope to fulfill an order for you soon! 

I don’t see the flavor/item that was offered on your last drop. is this really not available? If not, when will it be?

Just like in our physical stores, our flavors rotate often and the selection changes on every “Pint Drop”. We don’t have a timeframe on when certain flavors will return. When the site is marked as “SOLD OUT”, the flavors displayed does not necessarily reflect the selection that will be available on the next pint drop.
